Cat stuck between fan and grille

So my sweet wife informs me that the kids kitten is rotting away somewhere on the passenger front of my truck. I'm in ND for another week working. Oh the joys of pets and working off. No shop around the house wants to touch it. So by the time I get home I'll have a fine kitty skeleton somewhere in the front cap.

Is it hunting season yet??

<- Sorry

I'd bet the kitten got out a long time ago and the kids or wife just missed it. They are sly little f'ers.

G'luck. Or put the wife to work. Wouldn't take long to pull the front grill. She could do it.

Hahaha... could be worse... a few years back when I came back off one of my deployments I had a squirle that had chewed it's way into the bottom of my old truck and died near the air inlet for the AC.. I was gone for 7 months so no telling how long it had been there... I'll just say that summer was AWESOME!!! luckily I was in SOCAL at the time and didn't the AC very much.

Could be worse I ran over some rotten road kill once and it started cooking on the exhaust, it was caught in all the little nooks and cranny's I tried pressure washing it, nothing got the smell out. I had to park it. I ended up junking the car because the animals ended up ripping everything out (wires, hoses, cables) from under it trying to get the smell...

When the mice start nesting I usually notice the barn cat sitting on the tire of my truck. I never thought about the cat going in too far though...

That is crazy and nasty at the same time.

When I picked up my truck from Nebraska and drove it down to Mississippi on its maiden voyage, I picked up some organic material as well. Birds kept flying at my truck like they were performing kamikaze from WWII. I saw a few of them bounce off and verified it in my rear view mirror, but never saw a couple. I removed my front grill 3 months later to upgrade to HID's and found a dead bird stuck in the frame. However, a cat is on another level of nasty.

A little while later i was told to bring said bmw in to the shop and put it on a lift. the guy had run over an already run over deer. We pulled meet out of that car. full deer parts. Nastiest thing ive done i think
